Component with attributes


#1

Hi
I would like to make a component which has a cost attribute and a constant cross-section text on it which alters as the length increases.
I build heavy timber frames so would like to have a component post which is a set cross-section, say 200 x 200mm, which I can pull out to whatever length required and which I can assign a cost to which will change with the length.
Also when i move the drawing to layout I would like the component to automatically have a tag with the cross-section size noted on the face,
Any ideas.

The label texts in LayOut can be made to reference properties of a dynamic component, but the placement of labels in either SketchUp or LayOut is not automatic.
